      I'd fold simply because you've not committed anything to the hand, and you are not winning that 1 in 2 times. Behind to any pair, a K, any pocket pair......

      I would never go AI on such a board, but I would consider a call here...

      Nevertheless, I think fold would be the best option, cause the pot is too small to risk calling such an overbet.

      fold the river, flush with trips on the board is trash. he won't ever call with something you beat (every pocket pair , 3x , ax, Kx beats you)

      why not put out a bet after the SB checks to you on the flop? completing the sb is a sign of weakness...

      a bet like 0.2 will show where you are at, and either you win it right there, or play check/fold later on.

      as played, i would just call the river, since the board is looking very dangerous.

      Hello Jenoc,

      a SB completer is weak as salmon but checking preflop is fine but I would just 4bb it preflop for FE.

      postflop, if he checks to you, try to take the pot with $0.3 , it is a bit of an overbet but it gives you more FE than potbet which is only 2bb..

      As played, folding the River is good but calling is high variance and therefore not recommended.
      Try to ask yourself the question, what can you beat?

      Best regards,
      Gerv
